Art Classes, Guided Drawing, 2019-2020
Wednesdays, 1:30-3:00 PM

Ages 8-12.  Our art classes are designed to teach students the skills they need in order to be able to draw the world around them. The skill of drawing has more to do with accurate observation than it does with how to use a pen or pencil. If you can write your name, then you can learn how to draw. Our classes are a combination of structure and freedom. A non-judgmental, non-competitive environment where it is safe to both try and succeed and try and fail.
